Primark is a leading international retailer with 17.3 million sq ft of selling space across 408 stores in 14 countries. Since founder Arthur Ryan opened our first store in 1969 in Mary Street, Dublin, which is still our headquarters today, we have been famous for our great value prices and great quality products. These attributes remain at the heart of Primark and today you will find Primark not only across the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe, but increasingly in Central Europe and the US. We have ambitious expansion plans and expect to trade from 530 stores by the end of 2026, including 60 in the US.

Primark wants people to look and feel good every day at prices that are affordable for as many as possible. Everyone is welcome at Primark. Our product range offers something for everyone from great quality essentials to stand-out style across womenswear, menswear and kidswear, plus beauty, homeware, accessories and exciting licensed ranges created in partnership with some of the biggest names in food, entertainment and sports.

Primark is a retail store business. We invest to create a welcoming and exciting store retail environment, with many locations offering services including beauty, food and drink. Digital is playing an increasingly important role in our offering. We have invested in the latest Oracle stock management and financial systems and our stores have state-of-the-art electronic point of sale terminals.

We have significantly upgraded our customers’ digital experience with the UK launch of our new website, featuring a fresh design with much-improved functionality, including more products which are much better showcased and a new facility which allows customers to check stock availability in their chosen store. This will be followed by additional features including a customer account and the ability to create a wish list of favourite products. This improved website will be introduced in all markets in the coming year. We will be launching a Click and Collect trial in 25 stores in the north of England and Wales, which will provide our customers there with a comprehensive and much broader range of kids products. 

We want to make more sustainable fashion affordable for everyone. We are committed to ensuring that by 2030 all our clothes will be made from recycled or more sustainably sourced materials, carbon emissions halved across the entire value chain and pursuing a living wage for workers in the supply chain. Some 45% of our clothes today are already made from either recycled or more sustainably sourced materials. More than half a billion single-use plastic items have been removed to date. We have expanded our Sustainable Cotton Programme by committing to train more than 275,000 farmers in more sustainable farming practices by 2023, in the largest programme of its kind managed by a fashion retailer.
